Majesty Turned Murderer - Poem by Matthew Hyatt

The ocean was once a place
Of beauty and grace
Nevermore shall it be
Since it took them away from me
I hate the sea

The couple Kami and Gene
Have since never been seen
Lost in an inferno of blue
All that was found was his shoe
The worst of fears came true

The remembrance that Boiler Bay
Took them away
Only refreshes the pain
That they were unmercifully slain
I hate the sea

    I found this to be very deep/strong with a complete sense of your trepidation towards the sea. (Report)Reply

    I am in awe of your bravery. It takes a lot of strength to write about something that touches so deep. But you took the chance, and created something thoughtful and lyrical, therefore beautiful. I'm proud of you. (Report)Reply
